SELECTMEN'S REPORT 

During 1965 the Town Road Aid funds in the amount of 
$9,048.75 were expended on re-construction of the Peaslee 
Road which is about one-half completed. It is proposed to use 
the 1965 TRA funds in completion of this project as it is a 
school bus road. 

The construction of the fire-proof vault in the Town Hall, 
as authorized at the last Town Meeting, has been completed 
and is now in use for the storage of permanent Town records. 

The construction of a new ready mix concrete plant 
known as Pre-Mix of New Hampshire, was started in the fall 
of 1964 and it proposes to commence operation early in 1965. 
The construction of this plant represents the latest addition 
to Merrimack's growing industrial community. 

The Planning Board, appointed in accordance with your 
vote at the last Town Meeting, has been working throughout 
the year. The results of its year's efforts are represented by 
the zoning ordinances adopted at the Special Town Meeting 
on November 10, 1964 which are being consolidated with pre- 
vious zoning regulations and will be available for distribution 
in printed form early in March. 

During 1964 there were issued 90 residential building 
permits and 6 permits for the construction of industrial or 
commercial property. 

Our community was one of those that voted to retain its 
Municipal Court under the District Court Act of 1963. The 
work load handled by our Municipal Court is explained in the 
special report in subsequent pages. The maintenance of our 
Municipal Court in Merrimack results in a substantial con- 
tribution to the Town's income.

MERRIMACK POLICE DEPARTMENT 

This department with the cooperation of the Town's 
people ran two successful whist parties for the purpose of 
procuring funds to purchase a resuscitator. This unit is stored 
in the cruiser and its use is available to all. We want to ex- 
tend our thanks particuarly to Office Arthur Timmins, Chair- 
man of this committee, who devoted many hours to make this 
succesful. To Father Denis Downey for the use of Our Lady 
of Mercy Church and his participation. To Ronald Farland 
who headed the special donations and to everybody that con- 
tributed to this worthwhile and needy cause. 

Once again we bring to your attention the teenage drink- 
ing and driving after drinking problem. While this problem is 
still a small one it is a very serious one. Since it would be 
costly to discuss this in this report the Police Department 
would be very happy to discuss this with any individual or 
group organization. Please feel free to contact us. 

The curfew law is working out very nicely. However, it 
is too early to determine its full effect on our younger popula- 
tion. During the winter months, Mother Nature discourages 
outside activities and we don't have so many problems. On 
the other hand, when Mother Nature opens the Gates during 
the warm months we do anticipate some problems. 

The Juvenile Court sessions that are held in the Judge's 
Chambers of the Municipal Court room are very effective. 
Mr. Charles Morrill is to be commended for his part in dealing 
with the few who go astray. Mr. Morrill is very fair and un- 
derstanding and is extremely interested in our youth. ; 

The Police Department of Merrimack and members of the 
Department of State Police are very proud; not only of our 
Court room and procedures but also of the way Justice is 
handled. 

In conclusion we would like to inform you that we have 
throughout our Township a very good group of teenagers. A 
group that the Police Department is proud of and for teen- 
agers that read this report and our complaint and investiga- 
tion list, you will get a lot of satisfaction in knowing that you 
represent a small part of it.

During the past year we experienced a very dry season. 
Through this crucial period with the co-operation of the pub- 
lic, we were very fortunate in not having any serious fires. 
However, the fire department did receive many calls request- 
ing the fire department to use its equipment and men to fill 
wells and carry water for other purposes. Much to our regret, 
we had to refuse these requests due to the fact that being a 
volunteer fire department it is difficult to find men who are 
available to go out on these calls; also, that it would be unwise 
to use the equipment for any other than emergency purposes. 

76 



Below are listed a few helpful hints that may help pre- 
vent fires in the home: 

Keep large, noncombustible ashtrays handy, and use 
them. Never use plastic coasters. 

When emptying ashtrays, make sure all tobacco and 
matches are out. You might even sprinkle water over the 
contents, or empty it in the toilet. 

NEVER SMOKE IN BED! You might fall asleep and drop 
your cigarette. This might start a fire; the toxic gases 
from it could asphyxiate you before the heat woke you 
up. 

Check lamp and extension cords frequently. Replace any 
which are worn or broken. Don't use multiple outlets. 
Unless qualified, don't try to repair your TV set. It's 
much too complex for "tinkering." Fire or severe shock 
could result. If your set needs fixing, call a TV repair- 
man. 

In case of fire dial 4-5571. State location of fire. Do 
everything you can to keep the fire from spreading. Keep 
buildings closed as much as possible, and upon arrival of fire 
department, give them information which may be of help to 
them. 

Please keep all roads open so trucks can go and come at 
will, without being hindered by cars parked in the road.

REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN 
AND YOUR DISTRICT CHIEF 

The 1964 forest fire season surpassed the record year of 
1963 in both length and severity. For the second successive 
year, we experienced a rainfall deficiency of more than ten 
inches and the compounding of such drought conditions, to- 
gether with the many days of strong, dry winds, character- 
ized 1964 as one of the most hazardous years in the past half 
century. Although our fire season was three weeks longer 
than that of 1963, the number of fires showed only a slight in- 
crease and more remarkable was the fact that the area burned 
dropped from 2280 acres in 1963 to 900 acres in 1964. Early 
detection and rapid response kept many pontential fire dis- 
asters from becoming reality. We all owe a debt of gratitude 
to the men in this community who responded and fought our 
fires so efficiently. Our state is now 86% wooded and its 
economy - — both industrial and recreational — is greatly de- 
pendent on this forest resource. The responsibility for ade- 
quate fire protection of this great area — 4,350,000 acres — 
is everyone's responsibility and prevention is one of our most 
effective tools. 

Prevention is good common sense. 

1. Take your rubbish to the town dump. If you must 
burn, obtain a permit and watch your fire until it is 
dead out. 

2. Instruct your children in fire safety. Keep matches 
from young children. Explain to them the dangers of 
lighting matches and making outdoor fires. 

3. Be sure discarded sitidking material and matches are 
out. 

A major portion of our preventable fires this year are 
chargeable to three causes: (1) permit fires allowed to es- 
cape; (2) children playing with matches; and (3) smokers. 
Let's be mindful of the fact that all such fires endanger prop- 
erty and lives. 

We wish to thank you for your very fine cooperation 
during the past fire season and with your continued coopera- 
tion we are confident that we can improve our fire record in 
1965.

REGULATIONS REGARDING BOOKS: 

New books and best sellers — One Fiction and One Non- 
fiction only, will be allowed each borrower WITHOUT RE- 
NEWAL, while such books are in demand. 

OVERDUE BOOKS: 

Reminder cards will be sent for one week overdue. 

Second cards will be sent for two weeks lapse. Then a 
bill will be presented for the price of the book or books, and 
library privileges will be cancelled until such time as the book 
or books are returned and the fines paid, or the price of the 
books refunded. 

The fine is one cent per day for each day overdue. 

1,238 books were borrowed from the Bookmobile. Our 
source of supply from now on will be from the Exeter Book- 
mobile. 

36 books were also borrowed from the State Library, 
Concord. The borrower is expected to pay the return 
postage. 

The Schools by classes are still welcomed at the library 
on Wednesdays. We again request that Students requiring 
reference material submit their requests in advance — this 
will enable the librarians to search for fuller details not pres- 
ently at hand, and in so doing be of greater assistance to the 
students. 

"Children's Book Week" was observed from November 
16th to the 21st. 

79 



Open House was held in the evening of November 16th 
so that parents and friends could see our new Children's room 
in the basement. Refreshments were served with Mrs. Ethel 
Mitchell Smith as pourer. 

The new room is very light, well equipped with ample 
book space. Members of the Extension Group made and gave 
curtains for the windows. Mr. Hobart Carlton made four 
small stools to be used by the younger children. 

During that week we had on display many new books 
purchased and donated for children and adults. 

We take this opportunity to state our appreciation to 
Mrs. Ethel Smith for her able assistance in our work of re- 
pairing, mending and re-covering the numerous books need- 
ing repair that pass through our hands during the course of 
the year.

REPORT OF THE BOARD OF HEALTH 

There was the usual run of infectious diseases with no 
case of Polio reported; in fact there were about 125 cases of 
Polio reported in the entire United States. This fact is prob- 
ably due to the mass innoculations against Polio. I would 
urge parents to take advantage of Measles vaccine now avail- 
able and perhaps Measles will be as well controlled as Polio. 

Due to the continuing building program in Merrimack 
there was a large number of sewage systems to be inspected. 

Several homes were inspected as to the desirability as 
foster homes. 

Several people called because of lack of water in their 
wells. This of course was beyond the scope of the Health 
Department.

CIVIL DEFENSE 

A few meetings were held during May and June then 
were suspended due to lack of interest on the part of the 
townspeople. The radio purchased for Civil Defense is used 
each week, except for the summer months, for a County Net 
Drill. This Net meets each Tuesday night at 7: 30 P.M. on a 
frequency of 147.38 MC. This is strictly an emergency Net 
and only meets on regular schedule or during an emergency. 
It is possible, with the addition of another radio set, to be 
able to contact either the Manchester Police or Fire Depart- 
ments on a 24 hour basis. 

One of our problems is to locate a fall-out proof room 
for Civil Defense Communications. The National CD Agency 
has stated that until such time as this is done, there will be no 
matching funds available for Police or Fire Dept. radios.

MERRIMACK TOWN PLANNING BOARD 

REPORT FOR 1964 

At the 1964 Annual Meeting, the Town voted to establish 
a Planning Board under the provisions of Chapter 36 of the 
New Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated, and the Select- 
men thereafter appointed seven members to serve on the 
Board. In this, its first report to the Town, the Planning Board 
would like to do three things: (1) outline the activity in 
which it has been engaged since March, 1964; (2) comment 
on the importance of implementing and enforcing existing 
laws and ordinances of concern to the Planning Board; and 
(3) indicate the direction in which the Board feels it should 
proceed in carrying out its responsibilities. 

Soon after its organization, the Planning Board decided 
that there were certain specific problem areas which needed 
prompt attention and voted to prepare recommendations for 
Town action to meet these problems. Among other things, the 
Board felt that the proper development of the Town required 
more adequate regulation of lot and yard sizes, mobile homes, 
junk yards, and building practices. Many meetings were held 
during the spring and summer to prepare recommendations 
for Town action, and two public hearings v/ere held in Sep- 
tember. On November 10th, the Board's recommendations 
were presented to a special Town Meeting, at which all of the 
recommendations were adopted. 

It is not enough to adopt ordinances. We must work to- 
ward implementing the changes voted on November 10th and 
cooperate in seeing that the provisions of the zoning ordin- 
ance and building code are complied with. The Planning 
Board feels that the following actions are particularly import- 
ant and that they will, when accomplished, be of significant 
value to the Town: 

, . 1 , Appointment of a building inspector; 

2. Appointment of a board of adjustment; 

3. Making copies of the amended zoning ordinance 
and the building code available; and 

4. Taking steps to license junk yards and enforce 
junk regulations, which become effective May 10, 
1965. 



86 



The Planning Board is directed by law, among other 
things, to make and perfect "a master plan for the develop- 
ment of the municipality." According to the statute, the 
master plan shall be made with the purpose of accomplishing 
a development of the municipality "which will, in accordance 
with existing and probable future needs, best promote health, 
safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity, or the general 
welfare, as well as efficiency and economy in the process of 
development." The Board feels that it should proceed to pre- 
pare such a master plan. It also feels that it cannot effectively 
exercise its zoning and subdivision regulation powers until 
the surveys and studies which would form the basis for the 
preparation of such a master plan have been made. Having 
been advised, and believing the advice to be true, that expert 
help is necessary in making a comprehensive survey and 
study, the Board recommends that sufficient money be appro- 
priated to obtain such help. Specifically, the Board recom- 
mends that the Town appropriate $4,000 to be used to pay the 
Town's share (one-third) of the cost of a planning project 
under the Federal Urban Planning Assistance Program. If 
such an appropriation is made, the Board will be in a position 
to proceed with the planning work which it feels is vitally 
necessary to the orderly development of our rapidly growing 
town. 

In attempting to carry out its responsibilities in the 
future, the Board needs and will welcome the cooperation, 
help, and encouragement of the Townspeople and the various 
governmental and non-governmental town organizations. 
Planning for the future of our Town is really the concern of 
everybody.

REPORT OF SEWAGE STUDY COMMITTEE 
MERRIMACK, N. H. 

February 17, 1965 

As a result of action taken by the voters at the March, 1964 
town meeting, a committee was formed to study the town's needs for 
sewage collection and disposal. This committee was comprised of 
the following members: Mrs. Mary Moriarty, Franklin Haseltine, 
J. Wilson French, Bernard Quinney and John Lyons. At its first 
meeting, John Lyons was elected chairman. 

The committee had available, as a basis upon which to begin 
its study, a preliminary report of sewerage needs for the town as 
prepared by the consulting engineering firm of Anderson-Nichols & 
Co. Inc. This report was the result of a study authorized at the 1963 
town meeting and was paid for through a loan from the Housing and 
Home Finance Agency Community Facilities Administration. This 
loan is repayable without interest by the Town at such time as con- 
struction of a sewerage system might be undertaken. The committee 
was aware that no money was available for their effort and hence 
their work was limited to that which could be done by volunteer 
effort of the committee members. 

Early in the study it was agreed that a simple agreement with 
the findings of the report was not in the best interests of the com- 
munity. This is principally due to the fact that Merrimack has grown 
so rapidly in recent years that the area covered in the report does 
not correspond to the area of the Town now developed or presently 
under development. Further, the population forecasts thru the 
year 2,000 seem to be too conservative. The committee feels that 
Merrimack, due principally to its location, is going to continue to 
experience fairly rapid population growth and consequent housing 
expansion. It seems unrealistic to recommend the construction of a 
sewerage system that would be inadequate even before construction 
was started. Meetings have been held with principals of the Engin- 
eering Firm who made the study and they now agree that enlarge- 
ment of the scope is wise at this time. 

Members of the committee also spent much time in discussion of 
the relative merits of the Stabilization Ponding Sewage treatment as 
suggested in the preliminary Report as compared to other possible 
methods of treating and disposing of the collected sewage. This 
phase of the committee's study led into some preliminary negotia- 
tions with the City of Nashua where a large, modern, full treatment 

88 



plant has recently been constructed. Nashua city officials have indi- 
cated that their plant is adequately sized to receive and treat sewage 
from Merrimack and further, that they would be happy to contract 
to do this. Such study as the committee has been able to do without 
spending money for surveys and other detailed engineering, indicates 
that the best way for Merrimack to dispose of sewage would be into 
the Nashua system. To accomplish this a main trunk line sewer 
would be run southerly through the town paralleling the Boston and 
Maine R. R. to the Nashua town line where it would discharge into 
an interceptor line run up to that point by the city of Nashua. 
Further engineering study will however be necessary to conclusive- 
ly demonstrate whether or not this method is preferable to con- 
struction of a treatment plant in Merrimack. 

As of the date of this progress report, the committee has ar- 
ranged to do two things to bring its findings up for action by the 
people of the Town of Merrimack. First, a public meeting has been 
called for Thursday Evening, February 25th, in the School Auditor- 
ium at which time a full presentation of the committee's findings and 
recommendations will be made to the townspeople. It is hoped that 
as many people as can will be present at that meeting to listen to the 
report and ask whatever questions they need to in order to appreci- 
ate the needs for sewage disposal in our town. 

Secondly* the committee is recommending favorable action on 
two articles that will appear on the Warrant for the Annual Town 
Meeting. March 9th. The first of these articles would authorize the 
town officials to hire an engineer to revise and expand the prelim- 
inary Sewage Study Report. This could be done, at no immediate 
cost to the town, on a Federal loan as was the earlier preliminary 
study. The second article would authorize town officials to hire an 
engineer after completion of the revised preliminary report to pro- 
ceed with final planning and cost estimating of a proper sewage 
svstem for the town so that the townspeople could vote on their de- 
sires to construct sewerage facilities possibly at a Special Town 
Meeting later in the year. 

Respectfully submitted for the committee by: 

JOHN LYONS, Chairman

SCHOOL BOARD'S REPORT 

This current year, 1964-1965, of the Merrimack Schools 
activity has been one of smooth operation to this point. With 
the beginning of our fiscal year, July 1, 1964, we had a deficit 
of $2,001.89 over and above what we anticipated and what 
was voted at our last Annual Meeting. However, we do not 
ask for any deficit appropriation this year for we feel we are 
absorbing this amount by frugal and careful expenditures this 
current year. 

We were fortunate to secure Claude Leavitt as our Su- 
perintendent of the Supervisory Union #27. Together with 
Raymond Edwards,, as Assistant Superintendent, these two 
young men have expended steadv impressive application of 
their talents to Merrimack's problems, as well as to those of 
the other four school systems in our Union #27. We are ad- 
vancing our overall school efficiency in an orderly manner. 

The ioint committee of School Board and Planning and 
Building Committee have spent mudi time to bring to you the 
wisest plan, in the ; r opinion, for the town of Merrimack to 
pursue. The results have been projected in January to the 
Community and it is the sincere advice of your School Board 
that you give favorable consideration to the proposal of build- 
ing a new high school on the Bruce site at the Annual School 
D : strict Meeting March 2, 1965. It is to the town's advantage 
to take all the necessary steps to move forward in the building 
of a worthwhile Merrimack School System. 

The comparison figures of the budget for last year and 
this 3^ear with estimated revenues are: 

1964-1965 1965-1966 

Budget $458,579.95 Budget $501,995.80 

Less: Receipts 100,029.92 Less: Receipts 144,464.06 



Total to be raised $358,550,03 Total to be raised $357,531.74 
The major and only real increase in our budget this year lies 
again in the advance of our teacher salary schedule program. 
Experienced teachers' salaries are brought in line with the 
starting teachers' salaries, We shall employ at least two new 
teachers in the elementary area. 



102 






If the proposed new high school is voted, the extra budg- 
etary costs have been estimated to be about $58,064.00. Less 
Building Aid of $7,260.00 and Less Merrimack Grammar 
School expenses of $1,945.00, this would then make a net of 
$48,859.00, as the estimated additional cost. This includes 
principal and interest payments for this new school, as well as 
an extra teacher in industrial arts, custodial care, heat, light, 
and other sundry maintenance costs. 

Your Merrimack School Board is not asking for any of 
this in their own behalf, but they are asking for your contin- 
ued support in the education of your Merrimack youth.

REPORT OF THE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

To the School Board and Citizens of Merrimack: 

Today, more than ever before, improvement in the quan- 
tity and quality of public education is necessary. Better edu- 
cation demands an expanded and upgraded curriculum to 
meet the needs of every child. Adaquate building facilities are 
required to meet the needs of curriculum changes and in- 
creased enrollments. These needs serve to point the need for 
continued understanding and respect for the mutual respon- 
sibilities of voters, school boards and educators. It is only by 
the combined efforts of all people that our educational prob- 
lems can be resolved. 

Every effort is made to attract and hold highly trained 
and qualified teachers. We are pleased to note the following 
additions to the instructional staff. 

Miss Yvonne Caron of Gorham, a graduate of Rivier 
College, is teaching Math and Science at the High School. 

Miss Frances Dubuc, Nashua, graduate of University of 
N. H., and additional courses at Rivier College is teaching 
grade 6. 

Mrs. Rita Gobin, Manchester is teaching English at High 
School. Mrs. Gobin graduated from Keene State College. 

Miss Judith Joncas, Old Orchard Beach, a graduate of 
Merrimack College, teaches English and Library Science at 
High School. 

Miss Regina McArdle, Manchester, grade 4, attended 
both Mt. St. Mary and Notre Dame College. 

Miss Francine Noga, Manchester, grade 2. Miss Noga 
graduated from Notre Dame College, also studied at Univer- 
sity of N. H. 

Miss Alice Pratte, Bedford, grade one, graduated from 
Notre Dame College. 

Miss Constance Couture, Nashua, graduate of Rivier Col- 
lege, additional teacher grade 4 level. 

Mrs. Rhoda Lambert, Hudson, graduate of Rivier College, 
is teaching grade 6. 

Raymond Seamans, Milton, Massachusetts, graduate of 
Boston State College and additional courses at Univ. of Mass., 
is teaching grade 4. 

Mrs. Carole Coutris, Manchester, graduate of Keene 
State College, is teaching grade 3. 

104 



Mrs. Camille St. Paul, Reeds Ferry, additional teacher 
grade one, graduate of Framingham State College. 

Mrs. June H. Sampson, Francestown, graduate of Casle- 
ton Teachers College, teaches grade one. 

The total school enrollment for Merrimack in 1954-55 
was 522 pupils. This year, ten years later, our enrollment has 
reached 1,125. It is estimated that in 1974-75 the figures will 
approximate 1,800. If Merrimack continues to grow at the 
rate of the past ten years one might project 2,400 pupils by 
1974-75. This indicates a doubling of school enrollment every 
decade. This year each of our 43 elementary and secondary 
classrooms is filled. By quick calculation we may project the 
need for 86 by 1974-75 just to accomodate our present educa- 
tional program. Our needs for continued school construction 
is apparent. 

Our needs appear to be two fold. First, we need addition- 
al elementary classrooms. Second, we need adequate facili- 
ties to allow for curricular changes, at the secondary level, 
which will permit Merrimack High School to become a com- 
prehensive school as evaluated by the State Department of 
Education. 

We would do well to consider construction of a second- 
ary unit which would provide for needed curriculum expan- 
sion, thereby freeing present classrooms for necessary ele- 
mentary expansion. These and related problems have been 
discussed at great length by the School Board and Joint Plan- 
ning and Building Committee. It is our hope that the voters of 
Merrimack will give every consideration to the recommenda- 
tions of these committees. 

In conclusion I'd like to take this opportunity to express 
my appreciation for the cooperation and support that has 
been extended to this office by the instructional staff, school 
board, joint planning and building committee and the citizens 
of Merrimack. The educational future of the children of 
Merrimack is in responsible hands.

REPORT OF 

THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 

Mr. Claude H. Leavitt 
Superintendent of Schools 
Merrimack, New Hampshire 

Dear Mr. Leavitt: 

The following paragraphs constitute my report as As- 
sistant Superintendent in the School District of Merrimack, 
New Hampshire. 

Once again we have maximum utilization of the Mastri- 
cola School. Enlarged by ten classrooms just two years ago, 
increased enrollment has filled this building to capacity. 

In September of 1 965, there will be need for a minimum 
of two additional elementary classrooms making necessary 
the utilization of the Merrimack Grammer School for ele- 
mentary children. This will necessitate the relocation of the 
high school music program to the basement of the Grammer 
School. 

Continued growth is inevitable. Additional elementary 
classroom space must be made available by September, 1966. 
The Mastricola School currently houses five sections of grade 
1, four sections of grades two through four, and three sections 
of trades 5 and 6. It is important to note that, even without 
additional growth, additional sections will be needed each 
year. 

The pattern and history of the enrollment growth sug- 
gests that in a short time first grade sections will number 6. 
This would represent one quarter of the available space in 
this large elementary school. Three years after this occurs, 
the Mastricola School will house only grades 1 through 4. 
Obviously, space must be provided to house grades 5 and 6. 

In that a portion of the present junior and senior high 
plant was constructed with upper elementary pupils in mind, 
a decision to locate grades 5 and 6 in that building would be a 
logical one. Furthermore, the utilization of the remainder of 
this building by grades 7 and 8 would provide these students 
with laboratory facilities not available to them at this time. 
To move in this direction would allow the Merrimack School 
District the opportunity to implement long-range plans for 
adequate comprehensive high school construction. 

106 



Despite the inevitable pressures brought about by con- 
stant growth in enrollment at the Mastricola School, instruc- 
tional standards have been maintained at a high level. The 
efficiency with which this school facility is being operated is 
a credit to Principal Frank Garrahan and the collective action 
and attitude of the entire school staff. The people of Merri- 
mack have reason to be exceedingly proud of the high calibre 
instructional program being offered their children. 

During the current school year the children of Merrimack 
have been the recipients of the excellent services of our new 
Speech Therapist. Mr. David Meltzer. Mr. Meltzer serves the 
Merrimack schools one-half day each week. Because of in- 
creased enrollment, it is recommended that Mr. Meltzer's 
instructional time be extended to a full day each week be- 
ginning next September. 

I woul like to emphasize that maintenance of high educa- 
tional standards has been in large part due to Merrimack's 
insistance that instructional groups be kept to reasonable 
size. It is my sincere hope that this policy will be a continuing 
one. Well trained and conscientious teachers placed in charge 
of reasonably sized groups of children are the primary pre- 
requisites of excellent educational opportunities. 

Respectfully submitted, 

RAYMOND G. EDWARDS 
Assistant Superintendent

JAMES MASTRICOLA SCHOOL 

Principal's Report 

With the opening of this school year, the elementary 
school once again was faced with the prospect of a full house 
with an enrollment of over 600 children. Because of the large 
enrollment in the first grade, it became necessary to add an- 
other section giving us 5 sections of grade one, 4 each of 
grades two through four, and 3 sections each of grades five 
and six, plus the remedial reading room, filling all 24 rooms. 
Due to this increase in room requirements, it will again be 
necessary to seek two additional rooms for the next school 
year for the additional second grade and fifth grade teachers 
who will be required. 

Modern mathematics was continued into the fifth grade, 
and the program will soon be completed for the first six 
grades. A comparison of various mathematics programs 
points out the fact that we are presenting a sound, modern 
program which includes many topics which were not pre- 
viously taught in the elementary grades. 

The American Book Company reading series was intro- 
duced into the second grade and this is now our second year 
with this series. This year, we have obtained the services of 
a reading consultant, offered as a service of the American 
Book Company, who has offered helpful advice to the teach- 
ers concerning this new program. This new reading series 
will continue to be introduced to a new grade level each year 
until it is complete throughout the first six grades. In con- 
nection with our reading program, the remedial reading pro- 
gram continues to offer additional help (besides daily reading 
lessons) to those children who have a particular reading 
problem. 

Elementary school children of grades three through six 
continue to take advantage of the facilities offered by the 
Town Library. Classes are assigned library times on a bi- 
weekly basis and children who might not otherwise have the 
opportunity to visit the library are afforded the chance to go. 
Children also continue to visit the elementary school library 
which is open on a daily basis. Our library was enriched this 
year v/ith the purchase of three new sets of encyclopedias. 

Many gains have been made in bringing our textbooks 
up to date in the social studies and language areas. We are 
also making progress in acquiring an additional science series. 
We are fortunate in having townspeople who recognize the 
need for education and are willing to contribute to a sound 
educational system. 

Respectfullv submitted, 
LEO F. GARRAHAN, Principal 
113 



GUIDANCE REPORT 

The primary general difference between an elementary 
school guidance program and a secondary school guidance 
program is post-graduate assistance. The elementary pro- 
gram is concerned with the early identification of children's 
abilities. Counselors and classroom teachers are apt to work 
more closely together in the elementary program. Both pro- 
grams are concerned with children who may be having learn- 
ing difficulties, particularly in the elementary program. In the 
secondary program, there is additional effort to include edu- 
cational and vocational plans. 

In both the elementary and secondary schools the most 
important and primary activity employed in a guidance pro- 
gram is counseling, the process by which a pupil is helped by 
conferences to understand himself in relation to his develop- 
ing and changing world. An important part of this process 
may include conferences with teachers and parents and the 
use of other school and community resources when available. 

Counseling provides professional assistance by helping 
the individual to be more objective and realistic as he seeks 
self-understanding and self-development. Individual coun- 
seling helps the pupil interpret and relate facts about him- 
self, school, family, friends, his world, and to apply this 
knowledge in solving everyday problems and to learn how to 
solve problems for the future. 

Conferences with teachers and administrators are con- 
ducted to assess the pupil's progress and development. The 
teacher helps the counselor better understand how the child 
performs in the classroom and the counselor helps the teacher 
know and understand the child's abilities, special concerns, 
goals and problems. 

Counselors also work with parents in interpreting the 
pupil's progress in school and thereby help to find ways for 
fully developing the child's capabilities. Parents and counsel- 
ors share information so that both can understand the pupil 
better and guide him in making maximum use of his talents. 

Tests serve as one means of knowing the individual, his 
abilities, achievements, and interests. At best, tests represent 
only a sampling of behavior. They facilitate the gathering and 
utilization of objective information about the pupil for use by 
counselors, teachers, and parents. Tests, in conjunction with 
counseling and conferences with teachers and parents, can 
more effectively bring about the objectives of education, both 
as a program and as a process.

for those interested in the Armed Services the Armed 
Sendees Tests 
Conferences were held with pupils, teachers, and parents 
and in many cases this information was used with college ad- 
missions officers and employers. 

Throughout the year students had the opportunity to see 
films and hear tape recordings on the qualifications, training, 
and responsibilities of a variety of occupations and careers. 
There were also many opportunities to meet and discuss with 
representatives from trade and technical schools, junior col- 
leges, business schools, nursing programs, and colleges of 
liberal arts and engineering, as well as recruiters from the 
Armed Services.

REPORT OF THE MUSIC SUPERVISOR 

All State Music Festival was held in Portsmouth with 
Donna Johnson, soprano and Edward McCann, bass, repre- 
senting Merrimack High School. 

The string program did not proceed as had been expected 
so, therefore, a short period of rest from this program is sug- 
gested. 

The first joint band concert was held here with Milford. 
Due to our heavy schedule we were unable to reciprocate. 

A beginners band is now being formed and from this 
group will be chosen, very carefully, those to enter the march- 
ing band. 

The Band Association presented an award to the out- 
standing senior, who had done the most in Music, either in 
band or choral. It was won by Donna Johnson and a second 
award was given to Pamela Arnold. 

The following has been the band schedule. 
February — Franklin Ski Carnival 
April — Joint Concert with Milford 
May 27 — Brookline, N. H. — Memorial Parade 
May 30 — Memorial Day — Merrimack and Hudson 
June 30 — 

July 2 — World's Fair — New York 
July 4 — Merrimack 
September — Rochester Fair — Tied second place 

with Somers worth High in marching 
October — Deerfield Fair — Grand prize and third in 

concert. 
November 11 — Veterans Parade — Manchester and 

sponsored by V.F.W. of Merrimack 
December — Christmas Parade — Nashua 
The Band Association has supplied each member of the 
band with parkas for winter parades and each parent has 
purchased white boots which are to be left as band equipment. 
At this time I wish to thank the townspeople and Band 
Association for their tremendous support in sending the band 
to the World's Fair. I also want to comment on the fine work 
done by the chaperones. The band parents can be very well 
proud of the conduct of their children as they were a credit to 
the town.

"NO SCHOOL" SIGNAL 

If school is to be called off for any reason there will be 
notice read over stations WOTW and WSMN in Nashua and 
WFEA in Manchester 7: 30 o'clock in the morning. 

Because of the required 180 days of school brings the 
closing of the school year well into the month of June, it is 
the feeling of the School Board, that it would be unwise to 
call off school unless it is impossible for the busses to negoti- 
ate their routes. We are asking all parents to use their own 
discretion sending children to school during a bad storm. 



SCHOOL BOARD MEETINGS 

The regular monthly meeting of the School Board is held 
at the James Mastricola School on the third Tuesday of eac^ 
month at 7: 30 P.M. The meeting is open to anyone with com- 
plaints or suggestions on the operation of our school sys- 
tem. The only way that the School Board can act on any 
situation is as a body. 



CLOSED SCHOOL YARD 

School Street adjacent to the High School and all drive- 
ways leading to both the High School and Mastricola Elemen- 
tary School are closed to all traffic except School Busses be- 
tween the hours of 8: 00 A.M. to 9: 00 A.M. and 2: 30 P.M. to 
4: 00 P.M. when schools are in session.
